Spring 2012 First Episode Impressions of Shorts and Continuations

I couldn't resist watching the spring season like I did for the winter season so I'll give some first impressions on all I've watched.

Gakkatsu hopefully will be hilarious with each episode being about a random strange issue. Right up my alley!

Shorts

Gakkatsu - Made a post about it!

Shiba Inuko-san - A strange one about a girl who is a dog yet goes to school like a normal person. I'll give it a few more episodes before I choose weather I want to blog it or not. I'm sure I'll end up doing something with it.

Yurumates 3D - I actually expected this to be a full on series not a short episodes one because there are already 2 ova's of it. Can't say this will get better with time.

Recorder to Randoseru 2 - Picks up right where S1 left off. (Did anyone aside from this person and me watch it?) This show is silly pandering to both girls and boys. I oddly find it quite amusing.

Kuromajo-san ga Tooru - Meh not very interesting since I can barely remember what it was about. I just remember it was too long being at 7 minutes... Which you know... Is never good for a short episode series to give an impression of.

Oh how magical boys amuse me so.

Season 2+

Fate/Zero - Picked up right where season 1 left off. It's good to have it back~

Kimi to Boku - More boys and cats. Can't go wrong here in my opinion~

Kore wa Zombie desu ka? - Yet another that picked up right where season 1 left off. This first episode even felt like the first episode of season 1.

Phi Brain - Again, picked up right where season 1 left off. I look forward to my weekly dose of puzzles~

Saki - So the mahjong girls are back. I'll watch it because I watched S1 but I'm going to expect the same results as S1... Meh.

Queen's Blade - This first episode kicked off with a booty-licious pirate babe! I was amused. Good to have Queen's Blade back for my weekly dose of awesome boobs and hilarity!

YEAH CARDS!

I've kept up with Cardfight!! Vanguard but haven't watched any of the S2 yet. I will watch it though as I've become fond of the show somehow... Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream has slow subs but they are getting there so I'll wait till I can finish S1 before diving into S2. Jewelpet S4 I have no interest in due to not having seen any of the other seasons of this show. I kinda want to but I'll wait till season 1 appears. There's a bunch of other kiddy anime airing as well of course but I don't keep up with them either.

Oddly the one I was most looking forward to.

Continuations of franchises

Eureka Seven - Now I'm not the hugest fan of Eureka Seven but I highly enjoyed this first episode. I really think that old dude with the glasses is pretty darn hot too. I hope this one exceeds my low expectations for the franchise.

Haiyoru - This had a short episode series made so I wasn't expecting to like the full anime as much as I did. Somehow they improved on the shitty little short and made it watchable. I can't say that I believe the series will stay this way though. I give it 3 more episodes before it suffers the same fate as the short episode series.

Lupin III - A series focusing on Fujiko? Fuck yes! And I wasn't shocked or offended by the amount of boobs that was in this either unlike most people. I mean really... It's about Fujiko!

SD Naruto Rock Lee - Worst than I thought it was going to be... Which wasn't good to start with. I'm sad that the bf actually liked it...

Arashi no Yoru ni - I love this movie to bits. This series weirds me out a bit due to the English cast and the CG but I think I'll get over it. Mei has something weird going on as well that I hope to get over as time goes on. Overall though it was a fun watch.

The only one I'm not watching since I haven't seen any of the series at all is Saint Seiya. Maybe I'll get around to it at a later point this year but I'm actually not counting on that. It is however a series I really do want to watch sooner than later so... Eventually!

Expect at least 3 more posts with all the other new NEW anime first episode impressions within the next few days. ^__^

~A Look at Anime to Come~ Spring 2012

Like this winter I'm only going to watch season continuations and wait till everything else has finished airing. I will be picking a few that I feel I will like to keep up with though. This brings my total up quite a lot from 6 shows in winter. I dropped 2 of those to watch at a later date because after 2 episodes they just weren't doing it for me. Another and Mouretsu Pirates will be better off marathoned, I hope... All the others keep pleasing me greatly. Especially Poyopoyo!

If you cut out all those school girls in this picture on the right I think it would make a much better anime...

Since Spring is a busy time of year anime wise my total jumps from 4 watching titles in winter to 11 new titles for spring! For a full list of anime going to air click here and here. I won't be picking up any new anime to blog because I think I still have my hands full with what my current plans are. (Like always)

Eureka Seven is getting another season focusing on another young boy. I wasn't a huge fan of the first show but it did have some really great moments and when some characters weren't being annoying great characters too. Hilariously enough I'm excited for more Queen's Blade! Gotta love big busty ladies fighting among each other for an awesome title!

Yum!

Haiyore is finally getting a full anime. They made a lot of shorts for it that's for sure so I knew it was only going to be a matter of time before it got a full series. Can't say I care about it though because the shorts didn't do it for me. So when I'm not pleased with the shorts it's generally a no brainer that I won't care about the full version. Arashi no Yoru Ni I can't believe is getting a full anime. The movie was great but thinking that this series is going to span 52 episodes is just odd to me. I doubt anyone will want to sub all of it anyway.

Season 2's: Fate/Zero (YAY!!!) Kimi to Boku (more boys being cute for another season) Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? (S1 was entertaining enough to get me to want to watch a S2) Phi Brain: Kami no Puzzle (This is a very fun shounen show about solving puzzles. It's kind of a sleeper hit imo since it's getting another season and all) Saki (Girls playing boardgames... I was meh for the first one but meh enough to want to watch another season of it. I love boardgames!) Yuru Yuri (YAY!!!)

Oh hell yes~

The only new anime I'm looking forward to is Space Brothers. I'm expecting something more awesome than Planetes. Now you might be thinking "Planetes is the best! Nothing can beat it!" or "Man if you weren't swooned with the anime read the manga!" 1. It's hard to get me to read manga and 2. I'm a strange person when it comes to me and SPACE stuff I like. It's pretty random actually. Something has to set me off in order to REALLY enjoy it for it's spacey goodness! This is partially why I'm not too pleased with Mouretsu Pirates.

There's a few others I have my eyes on that people have been talking about. Like this Mysterious Girlfriend X. It doesn't look like my kind of thing but it could be good. Hiiro no Kakera to girly it up because Hakuouki Hekketsuroku didn't do it enough for me. Dusk Maiden of Amnesia could be good but I have a feeling it will go the Gosick route for me. Kingdom looks like it will be right up my alley but I have suspicions that it might not get subs anytime soon. I'll wait and see what happens if I'll pick any of these up.

365 Days of Anime Characters: Day 346/365 Dominic Sorel

Day 346/365

Dominic Sorel

From the anime Eureka Seven, Dominic Sorel is the youngest Lieutenant soldier of the United Federation of Predgio Towers. He serves under Dewey and does anything he is ordered to. He is assigned to tend to Anemone and monitor her physical and mental condition.

Why I like him: He understands that since he is so young men that are way older than him would have issues actually following his orders. He doesn't get frustrated because of this which is awesome. I love how his interactions with Anemone always turned out since she's quite a brutal chick. His love for her was quite fun to watch as well since she is so crazy and doesn't get it.

Why I hate him: He was one of the few characters I enjoyed in the series completely.

Overall: I've heard that the manga has a different twist on his character so I think I'll check that out at some point.

One of my favourite pictures of Anemone and Dominic.

Day 10 of The 12 Days of Christmas

Crazy good, crazy bad.

Tenth up for The 12 Days of Christmas: romance moments is Eureka Seven. These 12 Days of Christmas posts aren't in any particular order. I just choose moments that actually made me feel all warm and squishy inside. Be sure to check out animemiz’s scribbling's and Desu ex Machina's and Memories of Eternity and Unmei Kaihen's blogs for more 12 Days posts! Oh and there might be spoilers about so read at your own risk. For the most part though I think I’ve kept things as spoiler free as possible. :)

 

 

Now I liked this anime but not as much as everyone else. I found most of it annoying in general. The characters irritated me like crazy with their endless whining. Yeah I know they are kids but gees suck it up... >.< At least the gained maturity at the end of the show among pretty much all of the characters made the show worthwhile to sit through.

Who? Dominic and Anemone

Dominic and Anemone

Anemone and Dominic

Why they are adorable: She was a crazy bitch throughout the anime to him. Up till the end at least. He stayed by her side no matter what craziness she put him through. Sure unrequited love is cute but only for so long. You saw that he clearly cared for her more than she did for him at first.

Cummings and Liang from Canaan.

With the recent watching of Canaan right after watching Eureka Seven. It made me appreciate the love a man can have for a crazy lady even if she has no idea till the "end" that he truly is the only one to care for her in the world. Everyone else is just using her. Maybe I just have a thing for seriously good stories that involve unrequited love.
